Mozdev sysadmin meeting minutes for 2007-10-16

Present: David Boswell (davidwboswell), Doug Warner (silfreed),

Michael Dosser (tanker), Chris Neale (cdn-work), Eric Jung (ericjung)

Discussion was held publically in #mozdev DNS is broken

- Mic trying to get in contact with Andy about access. - Current IP is if anyone needs access (like Doug). - David can also change DNS servers in the registrar - changing DNS servers from to - Someone should also notify Andy that the account

can be disabled.

Discussed developer priorities

- Drupal deployed - Browseable deployed - For DMO, should we ignore projects w/ only a README.downloads or empty

downloads directory? - Probably would clean up the list - For DMO, should we list unpublished projects (they're currently mirrored)?

- unpublished projects probably have empty download dirs as well;

not really a problem that they're on the mirrors.
  • MySQL errors were a problem on, not production. fixed.
  • Removed broken mirrors
  • New mirror-up-check script deployed
  • working on Drupal documentation
  • Where should we start using Drupal? - Move docs into the wiki
  • bugzilla 3.0 themed on - should we enable the quick links on the

    top of the page (login, new, search, etc)? - should probably match's as close as possible, so let it in. Should also try to make the

    site feel more mozdev-y.

  • Setting up Drupal users with "Site Admin" for www (change config,

    add/remove drupal sites); Added David and Doug for now.

Discussed sysadmin priorities

- Fixed security holes in libpng and ImageMagick - the ImageMagick upgrade

was fairly difficult - PHP4 security hole is still present; still waiting on FreeBSD port - Apache 1.3 + PHP4 -> Apache 2.2 + PHP5 upgrade is becoming an increasing

priority - syncing and is still pending

Dealing with ownerless mail lists

- Should we do this instead of removing lists? What are the implications? - there are lots of held messages (>110k, 105k are 30+ days old) - could this be the cause of slow mail servers from 08-ish PDT for 3-4 hours? - The daily the held message nags might be the cause of our slow email

problems; Mic will look into this to determine if that's the case. - People should review

[bug\#17667]( "bug#17667 - Make mailman default config less annoying")

and make suggestions.
